I splurged a bit on books recently and purchased a few NYRB titles:

Caught, Back, and Blindness by Henry Green
The Life of Lazarillo de Tormes by Anonymous

I have started Lazarillo. It won't take me long as it is very short and easy to read.

Anyone else out there reading or purchasing NYRB?

Better than that. NYRB published Roberto Arlt's The Seven Madmen, which is actually only half a novel. The translation of Los Lanzallamos, the second half, has never been translated and published in English. Now a good translation exists. The translator has contacted NYRB and we will see what happens. If another publisher can get the old translation of The Seven Madmen and publish it together with The Flamethrowers in one volume, it will be a great historical event in English publication of Latin American fiction.

I just finished Austerity Measures by Karen Van Dyck:

An incredibly well put together poetry anthology.

After finishing what I'm currently reading, I may read Butcher's Crossing by John Williams or Fat City by Leonard Gardner.

$150 NYRB is hefty price for book club. How do you like the NYRB "titles?"

Check out the Roberto Arlt books here: This press is publishing Arlt's Seven Madmen and The Flamethrowers, two halves of one novel, at the same time. this is an historic event, the first English version of The Flamethrowers coupled with the first published translation of THe Seven Madmen, the Naomi Lindstrom, which is to many the definitive, mostly because it was the first, but also because she did a better job with the character appellations.
